I hate to disagree with so many people, but I made this mix because of all the positive reviews and was so disapointed! I was smoking a beef brisket, a pork roast, and some chicken and used this mix on all three. WAAAAAAAAY too salty!!! I am not watching my salt intake, or on a salt free diet but I felt like Lot's wife after eating this meat seasoned with this rub. Recipe calls for 16 ounces of salt seasoning (I used Lawreys) and truly believe if I had cut that in half, it would still be way too salty. We didn't even taste any of the other seasonings. so sorry to give a negative review but I fixed it according to measurements.


My only complaint with this rub is it made soooo much, which is okay because you can keep it for later use. It gave a very good flavor to my brisket.


Prepared BBQ beef for a family function and all raved about the beef. It was very easy to prepare and we slow cooked the beef (20lbs)for nearly 24 hours.
